Racist caricatures in CBC children programming
May 22, 2013 · By Charles Anthony
Wow! The folks at CBC created a children’s character called Mamma Yamma and my guess is that she is supposed to represent….. a yam?
That is funny. In the previous century, the children’s programming from Hanna-Barbera created a character called Mammy Two-Shoes. In the current century, they turned a new leaf and recognized the underlying racism.
I think the people operating the children’s programming at the Canadian Broadcast Corporation should take a few lessons from Warner Brothers, Hanna Barbera and Whoopi Goldberg: Whoopi Goldberg introduces racist caricatures in “Tom and Jerry”
